  2. I love the prayer stool! I my girls will to, and it would match their bedroom perfectly
    (poka dots) Please enter me in the contest.

  3. Please enter me in to win! 🙂 My daughter’s bday is Aug 29th and this is PERFECT for her! (and the rest of my gang too!) Thanks for offering it! It is such a great idea. God bless you. -Mary

  4. This looks very well made. Now here’s a piece of heritage worth passing along to the next generation. I’ll look into purchasing one of these. Thanks again, for another great opportunity!

  5. We use visual reminders to help our daughter who has Autism. We have prayed the Now I Lay Me Prayer with her every nite since she was a baby. What a beautiful gift this would be!

  6. What a wonderful idea! We’re working on including prayer in our daily life more, and this woudl be a fabulous reminder for my kids.

    The prayer stool is a great way to not only introduce your little ones to prayer, but begin the daily ritual and importance of prayer in our lives. Where is the boys’ stool?

  8. Lynne Tibor on

    The prayer stool for a little girl is precious. However, would the manufacturer be able to make one for little boys? Or better yet – how about a stool that is “for all” decorated brightly (or offered in 2 or 3 different options for a girl or boy) and stenciled with the “Our Father” “Hail Mary” or “Glory be to the Father”?

    Prayer is so important. I can see one of these stools becoming a keepsake – a treasure handed down – just as a cradle is – from generation to generation.

    Think of the stories it would tell!

    Be Blessed.

  9. How cute is that? It would go great with our new Family Altar that my DH and I are working on this summer. Thanks for sharing the information! 🙂 If my little girl saw it she would be in love!

  10. This really is so beautiful, a meeting of the waters almost- a gorgeous girly addition to any little girls room and a prayer prompt. This is my daughter’s favourite prayer, she will be three in October. I agree with Lynne it’d definitely be a treasured keep sake. I have my family Majellan medal and it’s very special to know that my mother, grandmother and so on have all clutched it at various times. Imagine kneeling where your faith seed began with older generations childlike innocence. Beautiful!

  11. What a nice way to set up our kids for prayer time. Would make it more pleasant for our kids to get into prayer kneeling.

  12. My husband has always had a kneeler in our bed room. this would be great for our children and a great reminder to pray. We would love to get one of these.

  13. What a great way to encourage prayer time. I did go to the website and saw that a boy’s version is available as well. Might have to consider these for Christmas gifts.

  14. Yesenia L. C. on

    Please enter me for a chance to win. I have a beautiful daughter that I am guiding in our faith. She just turned two (8/17) and knows to make the sign of the cross before meals and at bed time. This stool would be wonderful to teach her to kneel and pray.

  15. It reminds me of our “prayer table” which is a place to gather each evening and pray together as a family. We take turns placing items on the “prayer table,” such as a statue, rosary beads, special cross, and pictures of people we’re praying for. This would be a nice addition to our home. My littlest one is now 8 and could use this in her bedroom. And with a 4 month old new grand baby, it would get lots of use in the years to come.
